Smash Hits is a compilation album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, released in April 1968 and July 1969 in the United Kingdom and the United States respectively. Smash Hits comprises songs that were released as singles, and their respective B-sides.

There are some tracks on the album that were not singles or B-sides, however. On the UK version, "Fire", "Can You See Me", "Manic Depression" and "Foxy Lady" all came from the album Are You Experienced. On the US version, "Fire", "Manic Depression" and "Foxy Lady" came from Are You Experienced, "Can You See Me" and "Remember" came from the UK version of Are You Experienced, and "Stone Free" and "Red House" (a different version than the one featured on UK's AYE) were previously unavailable tracks.

Although Axis: Bold as Love had been released before Smash Hits was compiled, the compilation contains no tracks from the album on either versions. The album was a success in both countries, where it reached #5 (UK) and #6 (US) in the charts.
